Your 1st Step to Higher Education™
Yes, that’s right! We have more women taking the GMAT than ever before. In 2010, the number of female GMAT takers reached an all time high. Over the past five years we have seen a continual increase in the amount of women taking the GMAT as well as women applying for business schools around the world.
More specifically, there has been a great increase in the amount of women taking the GMAT at a younger age. Today, it seems that nearly half of all female GMAT takers are under the age of 25. This corresponds with the fact that women are pursing MBA degrees sooner than are men. The climb in the number of female applicants to business schools reveals that more and more women are seeing advanced education as a priority.
More interestingly, the biggest jump in women GMAT takers can be seen within Eastern Europe and Asia. Statistically, in 2009 there were more women taking the GMAT than men in China. In addition, India has seen a substantial increase in numbers of women sitting for the GMAT in the last five years.
It’s incredible to see the stereotypically male-dominated MBA class comprising of more and more women. Business schools themselves are pushing for more diversity and a better gender balance. Keep it up, girls!
